BYRON’S BRIDGE 

 

Chains cross limestone,
sentences silence freedom,
a city sinking as the clinking
stops, pauses, bends
on Byron’s bridge of sighs
to say goodbye.

 

All words by Damien B. Donnelly

Based on a twitter poetry prompt from #DimpleVerse

    I really like this poem, Damien. Yes, we all do need a good sigh now and then. 🙂

    “a city sinking as the clinking

    stops, pauses, bends

    on Byron’s bridge of sighs

    to say goodbye. “
